Here’s where you can meet the “adults” of Doll Dimensions–mainly the older ones who are mentors to the teenagers and little ones. 🙂
Aunt Mary-Ann has been one of Grace’s favorite dolls for more than 10 years, and is thus quite wise in many areas of doll life. She knows the ins and outs of Grace’s house, and can tell you where all of the nooks, crannies, and secret compartments are! Although not officially related to any of the other dolls, Mary-Ann is always referred to as “Aunt” Mary-Ann, for no real reason other than the fact that she just seems like an aunt. 😉 She is also just as proficient as Ginger at cooking, although she prefers the topic of savory dishes, while Ginger enjoys baking desserts and sweets. According to the boys of the household (for whom Aunt Mary-Ann cooks many a dish), she makes a mean pot of chili. 😉 Aunt Mary-Ann is also wonderful at storytelling, and she mainly tells recollections of what Grace’s house was like many years ago.
Aunt Mariposa is Aunt Mary-Ann’s sister, and she, too, has lived in the house as one of Grace’s dolls for many years. Grace bought her, along with her corresponding Barbie movie (Mariposa and her Butterfly Fairy Friends) when she was very young. Mariposa was always a favorite of Grace’s as a child because of her sweet, genuine face and brown eyes that were so different from many Barbies. Around the house these days, she is often nicknamed, “Your Friendly Neighborhood Fairy Godmother”, because although she doesn’t have a magic wand, she has a knack for creating simply gorgeous gowns, decor, and other miscellaneous items out of random objects. One of her catchphrases is “you shall go to the ball”, even when it doesn’t completely apply to the situation. 😉
Midge’s favorite word is “groovy”, and it’s easy to see why! Because of Midge’s historic background, she’s quite literally rooted in the 1950’s and 60’s, and she doesn’t know everything about modern technology yet. Her favorite place to be is by Grace’s record player, and she’s still trying to teach her new friends about sock hops, ice cream sodas, and Glenn Miller music. 😉 She’s also the one who taught all of the others how to swing dance, a trend that rapidly caught on! 🙂
